Dubai: Dubai-based carrier flydubai touched down in Milan Bergamo Airport on Wednesday, marking the launch of a new service to the city.

With this, the airline will now serve four points in Italy, including Catania, Naples and Pisa.

The five-times-a-week service will begin on March 10, before turning into a daily service starting April 18.

Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates will codeshare on these routes and the flights will operate from Terminal 3 at Dubai International (DXB), offering travellers more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub.
